Thanks for the replies. I thought I had read somewhere on here that some of the cruises provided shuttle service to ports but then someone else said that NCL did not.
When we landed at Santorini a couple of years ago on Celebrity we were on a shore excurion and I believe the tender took us to a dock where tour buses took us up a winding switchback road to the main island area.
If we aren't on a shore excursion do the tender boats take us to the foot of the cable car then (which I think is on the opposite side of the bay)? Hopefully that is the case. My memory is fuzzy and I didn't really pay attention at the time. Thanks for all of your help.
